    This LYJ hotel has an excellent location among other well known hotels in Gangnam area. It is a new and modern design for hotel with a boutique feel. And the hotel also includes a Spa and Restaurants for added convenience. I would recommend it for anyone on business or personal travel.

    Great location by the main strip in Gangnam. Upscale hotel and good view from backside towards Seoul Tower. We stayed in a Designer Suite and my gf was very impressed with the unique decor. It had a lot of space and a nice shower with rain shower heads from the ceiling. Recommended if you don’t mind the price.

    Excellent location right by the subway station”

    Stayed at this hotel in October 2018. It's right by the subway station and is only a few minutes away from Gangnam street. Hotel is nicely decorated and our room was clean. The only complaint I have is that the bathtub in the washroom does not have shower curtains and the bathroom will flood - regardless of how careful you are when taking a shower. The water drained pretty quickly (floor was dry when I woke up the next morning) but it was still annoying. Other than the lack of shower curtains, everything else was great so we'll definitely consider staying here again!

    Great Boutique Hotel”

    Usually we stay closer to Sinsa but this time around we decided to try out the LYJ. The hotel itself is very close to the station though we always take the cab.... If you want to head out towards Itaewon, Myeongdong area just make sure you leave with enough time as traffic can get quite heavy (even before you reach the highway). We stayed in the Suite room, which was very spacious, stylish and comfortable. The room came with a very big tub, enough for two. The guests staying at the hotel were mostly local people but the front desk was kind and helped us with reservations and directions during our entire stay. A very nice boutique hotel, highly recommendable with great price.

    Great location and beautiful rooms”

    Cleanliness of rooms, location and toilets

    Excellent location, this Gangnam branch was located right beside Sinnohyeon Line 9 to travel to other parts. There is a bus-stop right outside the hotel that brings you direct to Sinsa-Garusil, and just 5mins away from the main Gangnam shopping street. A lot of eateries also just behind and around the hotel. Rooms were very clean and the walkways had a nice scent. Toilets and rooms were big and had all it needed. The only trouble in the bathroom was it did not have a proper shelf to hold toiletries. The spa and bistro wasn't open when we were there and we're unable to comment. The only thing lacking was the service at the front desk. They were very dis-interested, listless, and impassioned. As we are quite fuss-free travelers it did not affect us much but for a 4-start hotel the service could definitely be improved.

    Clean, spacious rooms, great location, and great smells

    The hotel is well-situated, right beside Sinnohyeon Line 9. It's 5 mins away from the main Gangnam shopping street and bus-stop right in front of the hotel brings you to Sinsa-Garusil, and another bus line to the Express Bus Terminal where Shinsegae is. The alleys behind the hotel houses lines of eateries, grills and is bustling in the night. Rooms are very spacious, clean and the walkways smells good. Loved the rooms. Toilets are huge, spacious and clean except that the shower area did not have shelves to hold toiletries. The spa and bistro were not ready yet, and so, unable to comment. The front desk however were a bit lacking, they were dis-interested, impassioned and listless but we are quite fuss-free travelers so it did not affect us much. To be considered a truly 4-star property, this aspect of the hotel could be improved.

    This hotel is very modern. Check in/out was very fast. Rooms are a bit small but great view of the city. Free water in the fridge. However, you can't control the heat in the room! It was almost 30 degrees celsius so we had to open the window and turn on the air condition. Other than that, great price for the room. Location is excellent.

    This is an excellent location at an excellent price. The facilities themselves are only OK...But, really can't complain for the price. The Ritz-Carlton is across the street if that's your main concern. The only thing that I thought was unacceptable was that the hotel did not have an iron for clothes. Not even one.

    was there for a few days conference at Coex. This hotel is 200m from Sinnonhyeon station exit gate 3 (if i didnt remember wrongly). Across the road would be all the pubs and eateries place, as well as the gangnam area to walk around. cons - unfriendly staff. Luggage security totally screwed up. Left our luggage there for few hours after checking out. Nothing was missing, but i noticed the staff was not attentive to all the luggages parked at the lobby, almost anyone can freely dig anyone's bag. I went back after 5 minutes leaving the hotel because didn't feel safe leaving some important stuff in the bag, and true enough, i went straight to my bag and my friend's bag to take some stuff out, and the staff didn't ask or look at me at all. Doubt it was because he recognised me. Cons - there's no shower curtain so the floor will be all wet after one shower.

    We stayed in the designer rooms which we had to wait about 2hrs (we arrived at 3pm) The hotel is new and not quite ready with short of staff The pictures on agoda were NOT designer rooms They were more expensive rooms that were not offered to us due to the price difference and short of cleaning staff even if we would pay extra It's a false advertising But other designer rooms were interesting too I have to say the hotel isn't built for your comfort - power points and hangers were lacking surprisingly If they increase the amount from use 130 we paid, I won't go back

    location, staff speaks English

    Excellent location. Metro is just 5 minutes away and it's easy to tell taxi drivers where to drop you off ("just say Gangnam Sinnohyuen Station"). Numerous restaurants in streets behind the hotel. Staff speaks English, but the housekeeping is bad! They left out to provide clean drinking waters 3 nights out of 4, and threw our suitcases on the floor. They also threw our pajamas into our suitacases instead of folding them or placing them on our bed like we did when we left our room...the poor quality of housekeeping surely brought down the level of the whole hotel.
